Volvo Nears 3 Million Mile Mark

PATCHOGUE, N.Y., (UPI) — A New York state man said he is only 34,000 miles short of reaching the 3 million mile mark in his 1966 Volvo P1800S.

Irvin Gordon, 72, of Patchogue, a retired schoolteacher, said he is in no rush to reach the milestone, which is believed to have never been attained by another car, the New York Daily News reported Tuesday.

“I could do that going out for coffee between now and Christmas. That would be no problem,” he said of driving the last 34,000 miles. “But I’m not going to do it. I’m in no rush.”

Gordon, who purchased the car for $3,962.20 in June 1966, has held the Guinness World Record for a High Mileage Vehicle since 2002.
